The 2013 Man Booker International Prize Finalists

Posted By Trevor Berrett On January 24, 2013 @ 12:17 pm In Uncategorized | 12 Comments

The ten Man Booker International Prize Finalists are:

  • U R Ananthamurthy (India)
  • Aharon Appelfeld (Israel)
  • Lydia Davis (USA)
  • Intizar Husain (Pakistan)
  • Yan Lianke (China)
  • Marie NDiaye (France)
  • Josip Novakovich (Canada)
  • Marilynne Robinson (USA)
  • Vladimir Sorokin (Russia)
  • Peter Stamm (Switzerland)

This marks the second time in a row that there have been no Latin American authors, not that that’s at all surprising given the judges’ backgrounds. I am pleased to see Lydia Davis and Marilynne Robinson on the list, as I think they are two of the best writers in the United States.
